Sal Delgado Swings a Hot Bat in Carpinteria Win

Sal Delgado hammered out three hits and drove in the eventual winning run to support senior Diego Contreras in a 4-2 Carpinteria baseball win over Villanova on Wednesday.

Delgado had a triple, double and single. His double scored Coco Carrillo for the Warriors' third run in the first inning. Tony Vega knocked in the fourth Warrior run in the fourth inning when he singled in Delgado, who had reached on a lead-off triple.

The left-handed Contreras tossed five innings, surrendering one earned run on four hits, three walks and a strikeout. Freshman lefty Chase Mayer pitched a hitless two innings and struck out four to earn the save.

"Not the prettiest of wins as we mishandled more balls than we would have liked," Carpinteria coach Pat Cooney said. "However, the battery continues to produce patient performances and the offense executed some nice plays.  In the end, we went 3-2 over the last 9 days and we are starting to look more comfortable and more competitive."

Carpinteria evened its record at 3-3 while Villanova fell to 3-4.

Starting on Monday, Carpinteria's John Calderwood Field will be a host site for the first two days of the Cardinal Classic Tournament, hosted by Santa Paula. There will be three games per day, and the Warriors play at 9:30 a.m. vs. Foothill Tech and 12:30 p.m. against Pacifica. On Tuesday, they play at 9:30 against Channel Islands. All of Wednesday's games will be played in Santa Paula and determined by the results of pool play.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
